Complex Permission Management Question

Hi All


We have an Alfresco 5.2 Community implementation, where there is a complex hierarchy of folders under sites. Something like the below:


Site A--> Folder 1  ---> Subfolder 1, 2, 3 etc.  

                Folder 2 ---> Subfolder 4, 5, 7 etc.

It gets fairly complex, but the above is an over simplified representation.


Now we want that a user be made a Manager at Sub Folder 1 (but NOT have any access to Subfolder 2 and 3 and NOT to Folder 2 and its children folders). This user should be able to add users to Subfolder 1 as contributor/collaborator etc. She should also be able to add/remove users from sub-sub-folders of subfolder 1.


Now, we can always go to "Manage Permissions" for Subfolder 1 and add this user as manager using locally set permissions. But she would not get any access to "Folder 1" or  "Site A". How would she be able to browse to and find Subfolder 1?


Is there any addon to help manage this? Am I missing some obvious feature of Alfresco Share that would help with this?
